South Sudan's President Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar on Wednesday vowed to stick to a November deadline for creating a long-delayed power-sharing government, during a rare meeting in the capital Juba.
Machar wrapped up a three-day visit to South Sudan -- his first in a year from exile in Khartoum -- where he and Kiir tried to salvage a peace agreement that has stalled on several key fronts.
"The parties agreed to establish the government in time. When I said in time it means on the 12th of November," government spokesman Michael Makuei told journalists after the meeting.
Observers say a political deal between the historical rivals is the only way to move forward with the 2018 peace deal that has become stuck on key issues of security, and internal state boundaries.
The two men, whose enmity plunged the country into war in 2013 only two years after a hard-won independence that has been marked by ethnic brutality and humanitarian suffering, agreed to hold further meetings soon.
"I told you earlier on that talks between us are going well. And we will reach a deal soon," Kiir said after the meeting, exchanging handshakes with Machar.
